Coordinated global crypto policies: G20 key financial stability priority

The first G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors (FMCBG) meeting under India’s presidency discussed key financial stability and regulatory priorities. India urged member nations to understand the macro-financial implications of crypto assets and recommended formulating a coordinated global policy.

India’s Finance Minister, Nirmala Sitharaman, has historically supported creating crypto regulations in partnership with other jurisdictions — given the global reach of crypto assets. Under India’s G20 Presidency, this narrative is now a part of mainstream discussions.
